Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Associates: Of course, now at Fukushima we are not throwing scientists in jail, but I’m being approached all the time by scientist who are having great difficulty getting their reports published because of industrial pressure.
People just don’t want to admit the severity of the accident releases and they’re in control of the academic journals, which makes it difficult to publish.
Maggie Gundersen, Fairewinds Associates: We know one lead scientist who did an amazing study and submitted it to five journals and finally one of the five journals took it… Four journals all received incredible pressure to not publish that work. All of them have board member from the nuclear industry.
